Today's 39 miles were disposed of by all except one runner - that leaves just 21 survivors from the original crew of 41. These are very, very tough folks, believe me - dropping out so late in the race is a sign of major injury issues, usually severe shinsplints.
I'm running OK each day for the first 6 hours or so, but afternoons are very difficult for me due to cumulative fatigue & very sore feet. But so it goes. My times look horrible on paper, but my only concern right now is to make it to the finish line on Wednesday. My chances improve with each passing day.
